Student Council - Student government is important and a needed introduction as to how communities run in our society. Student council students meet everyday and plan activities for all students to engage in throughout the school year. The activities they sponsor range from clothing and food drives to dances and end-of-the-year activities. This year, during the Christmas season, they held a contest and collected over 500 pair of pajamas for the needy.
WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) - The WEB program was an exciting addition to our school.It was implemented four years ago and teaches eighth graders to become mentors for the incoming sixth graders. They also serve as role models for the entire school. The eighth graders are trained during the summer and ready once the school year begins. They get together with the sixth graders throughout the school year and their responsibility is: being a friend, giving advice, and offering another type of leadership in our school.
Science Olympiad is a team-based, knowledge/building event competition that allows students to work in pairs to solve science based problems. You may be challenged to build a tower out of balsa wood to hold 30Kg, or be able to identify mystery substances using chemical and physical observations. You may have a knowledge events that require you to know systems of the body, or safely deliver the payload of an uncooked egg in a 1 liter bottle rocket. We compete against 20-30 other teams from neighboring schools from Wayne and Monroe Counties. The culminating event will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at Thurston High School, in Redford Township. It's an amazing experience for our Grosse Ile Middle/High School students!
